Eye: Glimmering, clear amber. 

Nose: Initially subtle perfumes, slowly opening up into lush florals, grapevine and orchard fruit notes. 

Palate: As a result of long and continuous exchanges with the wood, the flavours have become well integrated. Luxurious and distinguished.

Description

Straight From the Heart: Pierre Croizet Valentine Cognac

As delicate on the shelf as it is in the mouth, this is a special bottle for a special occasion. The Pierre Croizet Valentine Cognac has been aged in the oldest of the maturing cellars at Maison Pierre Croizet, where the warmth of its beaten earth floor has softened the effect of contact with the oak. Native to the Fins Bois region, the producer has sourced all the eaux-de-vie for their Valentine’s Day bottling from this underrated cru. Covered by clay and chalk soils known as groies, the Fins Bois has a lot of characteristics in common with the Champagne regions, but can also display a more rustic edge. The heavy soil is around 60% clay, known for producing round, supple eaux-de-vie that age fairly quickly, with vivid and fruity aromas that stay true to the original grape character.

The Croizet family have always passed down knowledge from father and mother to daughter and son, keeping their skills a closely guarded secret. With a fighting spirit to survive, they have overcome many challenges over the years - not least the Phylloxera epidemic of the 1870s, when Amelina Croizet was pivotal in ensuring that the family’s vineyards survived. Over the years, one thing that has remained constant has been to keep the traditional methods firmly in mind, whilst also advancing the Cognac making process.

Today, the family company is in the hands of Leopold Croizet, the latest in a long line of grape growers. Passionate about expanding further, he has acquired further vineyards stretching beyond the Fins Bois region into Petite Champagne - creating the potential for a whole new range of eaux-de-vie with a wider appeal. Regardless of where they harvest their grapes, however, Pierre Croizet Cognac only uses organic fertilizers on their land, keeping firmly to the traditional methods of their ancestors.

Presentation of the Bottle

Strikingly slim and elegant, the bottle features gold foil on the neck and a delicate label showing a floral springtime scene, beautifully complementing the amber liquid contained within.

How to Enjoy Pierre Croizet Valentine Cognac

Finely crafted Cognacs like this deserve attention: pour gently into a tulip glass and let it rest for 30 seconds before taking a sip. To allow the aromas to open up further, a small dash of mineral water could be added.

About Pierre Croizet Cognac

Consisting of 30 hectares of vineyards in the Fins Bois growing area as well as some located in the Petite Champagne region, the estate of Pierre Croizet Cognac spans back in time and over the generations. This family run cognac house uses organic methods to farm the vines as much as possible, and has had a distinctly female influence throughout the years. This is something that both past and present members of the family are proud of. Leopold Croizet, who heads the house today, has inherited many business skills from his mother as well as other influential members of this traditional cognac producing family.
